I’m really happy to announce that we will be hosting a hack day on Friday for developing scientific applications in google wave. The event was thought up by Cameron Neylon and we at Nature were able to find a room and are able to provide interweb access and coffee. The JISC DevSci project and Google will be providing Pizza. If you have a google wave account you can check out the wave discussing this event.
We will have a number of our onsite developers taking part, some external people coming in, and quite a few people will be joining in remotely via Wave. It’s going to be very interesting to see how a full day of collaboration through wave works out.
The exact number of people coming in has not yet been finalised, but we do have some extra spaces, so if you are a developer with a wave account in the London area or you are a scientist with some great ideas for apps that could work well for scientists then please feel free to drop me a line and we will see if we have space to fit you in. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can, of course, pop in via wave and say hi.
The hashtag for the event will be #swlhd (science wave london hack day) if you are into that kind of thing.
